<quoted text>Sweden Is Top Democracy; Italy `Flawed,' Study Shows
Sweden is the world's most democratic state while Italy, a member of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, ranks as a ``flawed'' democracy and fails to make the top category of countries, the Economist said.
Countries are split into four regime types determined by their democratic credentials, according to a list published in the Economist's ``The World In 2007'' report. The classifications are: full democracies, flawed democracies, hybrid regimes and authoritarian regimes. The U.S., at 17th, and the U.K., at 23rd, ranked in the bottom half of the full democracies.

"the U.K., at 23rd, ranked in the bottom half of the full democracies."

Interesting, yet according to Barefoot's black-or-white logic, because we have a monarch we do not qualify as a democracy.

Just like since Einstein was a man, he was not a German.

Poor Skanque: prove wrong yet again.
Macmillan was not elected by his party.
And the Queen MAKES the appointment.
Of course, that is using the English language and the actual meaning of words.
WTF have you been smoking you drippydick cuckold

YES I agree

Wrong she approves the appointment as I have shown you several times on both government and the queens own site.

You would not know the “English” language if it sat on your face and farted.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.
Now why don't you give us a list of prime ministers who have been elected prime ministers?
Let me help you: none. Zero.
Never ever.
Yes and PMs resign, live with it. I have already explained, and shown you how via links, how the PM is selected but of course you ignored that information because you think you know better about the British way of life than a British person who lives in Britain and votes for the English government and that government.

Let me help you – You don’t.

YOU made the statement you LYIING T\/\/AT. And when that statement is PROVEN to be ridiculous you do your typical sloping shoulder routine and deny all knowledge that you f_cked up. Have you EVER acknowledged any single one of your many screw ups?

The formal mechanism is: the Queen appoints all the prime ministers, ever single one.
And you have absolutely no say in it. Same as me.
I have exactly the same say in who is the UK prime minister as you.
Wrong. But that’s just down to your own ignorance so expected. And at the time there was NO formal mechanism for handling the resignation of a PM. Is that MORE that you don’t know about the UK?

Sweden is also a democracy (no lies from you will change that)
Problem is the barfy butt breath’s mind only has 2 stages, 0 and 1. No in between and noting over 1, he has terrible trouble when 2 crops up in the conversation. Using two big words in one sentence, example democracy and monarchy totally screws with his idea of an ordered world formed in his mould. I really don’t know why he is blind to certain combinations of words, it’s rather like the term ‘Convention on Human Rights’, he can never associate the term with actual words. Strange really when he claims to speak English and denounces anyone who does not speak the same dialect of English as he lays claim to.

He also gets stuck in his 0/1 rut, e.g. how many times have you answered his oft repeated question “Is Sweden a monarchy, yes or no?” Same here, must be a hundred times I have agreed that the UK is a monarch and still he insists on repeatedly acting the same question, no matter how often he is answered.

This OCD surely cannot be healthy

I don't care if they take baths or not- I am sure they are infrequent- but whether or not PM resign or die in office: who cares.

When they are replaced, they are replaced, each and every one of them, by appointment.

And I have as much say on who will be the next PM as you.

Actually, I was the one who showed you, bigot, I show you how it works and so far, bigot, you have not been able to refute a SINGLE thing I have said.

Now bigot: the prime minister in UK is APPOINTED.

By the monarch.

Just as I have stated many dozen times.

NO matter how hard you stomp your bigoted feet.

And the prime minister is not always elected by his party.

As I have already proved.

Sweden: Cost of royal wedding triggers monarchy debate

By Malin Rising, Associated Press Writer

STOCKHOLM — It will be a royal moment of glory set against the bleak backdrop of Europe's financial crisis.

The June 19 wedding in Stockholm Cathedral between Crown Princess Victoria and her personal trainer Daniel Westling has triggered debate about why an otherwise egalitarian country like Sweden retains such an archaic — and expensive — institution.

Like in neighboring monarchies Norway and Denmark, the Swedish royals' responsibilities are purely ceremonial, but they still enjoy privileged lives compared to ordinary people, a disparity that has become increasingly evident during preparations for the wedding.

Many here are questioning the 20 million kronor ($2.5 million) price tag of the wedding — half of which will be borne by taxpayers — at a time when ordinary citizens are being asked to endure a new age of austerity.
